Australian comedian Dave Hughes appeared to get an endorsement by Donald Trump last month when the the US President tweeted his name on his infamous Twitter account.
Trump was, of course, referring to US Republican congressman Dave Hughes, rather than the popular funnyman.
But that didn’t stop Dave from firing back at the time, criticising Trump for not ‘proof reading’ his Tweets when Trump made a spelling mistake.
Appearing on Today Extra on Tuesday, the 47-year-old was asked by hosts David Campbell and Sonja Kruger about the now infamous social media exchange.
‘I think me, him and Kanye should get in a room together’: Dave Hughes spoke about THAT Donald Trump Tweet when he appeared on Today Extra on Wednesday
‘The Trumpster has given you a shout out on Twitter!’ David remarked .
‘I mean usually he just bags people out..’ he continued.
‘Yeah look I didn’t even realise I was running for congress in Minnesota,’ the comedian cheekily responded.
Cheeky: ‘You know what, I’m not really strong on the second Amendmen…’ the host poked fun at the President of the United States spelling AGAIN
‘But I’m happy to get involved there..’
As the trio laughed, the host of Ten’s Hughesy: We Have a Problem didn’t miss a beat, blasting Trump for his spelling, yet again.
‘You know what, I’m not really strong on the second Amendmen,’ he said.
‘He should actually use spell check..it’s Amendment I think Donald…’
And in perhaps a swipe at Kanye West’s recent Trump-infused meltdown on Saturday Night Live over the weekend, Hughsey ended the segment with a perhaps not-so-sincere idea.
‘I think me, him and Kanye should get in a room together and we can solve the worlds problems I reckon,’ he said.
Last month during the US midterm election, Trump tweeted to his 54 million followers ‘Dave Hughes is running for Congress in the Great State of Minnesota’, referring to the vital mid-western swing state.

‘He will help us accomplish our America First policies, is strong on crime, the border, our second Amendmen (sic), trade, military and vets,’ he added.
‘Running against [Nancy] Pelosi Liberal Puppet Petterson. Dave has my total endorsement.’
The day after the Tweet went live, the comedian told that despite having a social media free Sunday, he chose to fire back a tweet.
‘Can you please proof read your tweets before you press send Mr President? I’m not strong on the 2nd Amendment,’ he shot back, with the hashtag #fakenews.
‘I really was trying to do a ‘No Social Media Sunday’ but when the President of the Free World gives you his endorsement you have to get involved,’ he told news.com.au.
